Why we need part-time caregivers in Australia

Families may occasionally need temporary care support, especially when the primary caregiver is busy with other commitments, or simply need a break. While there are many long-term care facilities such as nursing homes and daycare centres in Australia, families sometimes struggle to find suitable short-term care options.

Without proper care support at home after a discharge, many face the risk of hospital re-admission, especially for seniors and those who live alone. Making care arrangements for the transition from hospital to home takes time, and a family member often takes on the role of the primary caregiver in the interim. Without proper caregiving background, training and knowledge, they may not be able to deliver the best care and can easily be overwhelmed by this additional role.

What can a part-time support worker help with?

Respite Care

Take a break to rest and recharge while our Care Pros take on the caregiving duties.

Post-Surgery

Focus on recovery and leave the complex nursing care in the hands of our experienced nurse Care Pros

Night Care

Care provided through the night to assist with toileting or nursing needs, prevent wandering and reduce fall-risk.

Proper care support can enhance recovery and reduce caregiver stress

Proper care support can enhance recovery and reduce caregiver stress. Having proper care support, a suitable home environment and carers equipped with the right skills and knowledge play a key role in wellness and recovery.

Those who need temporary care support after discharge or when the primary carer is away can engage a part-time support worker. This ensures that your loved ones receive quality care, while you have peace of mind as you take time off to yourself to rest or for other commitments. Besides benefitting the wellbeing of your loved one and preventing re-admissions, it also helps to keep the primary caregiver’s burnout and stress at bay.
